YMMV: Killer Is Dead
  • Critical Dissonance: This game got mixed reviews from critics. Half of them trashed game's combat for not being like Devil May Cry or Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. And criticized the story for being all over the place. Not only that, but the game's Gigolo Mode has caused controversy among professional critics as well. A lot of them calling it 'perverted' and some saying the game would kill Suda's career. Fan reaction was a lot more positive towards the game-play, and some feeling it's a good spiritual successor to Killer 7 themes, and No More Heroes play style. As for gigolo mode, most fans did not find it offensive (in fact many found the controversy overblown), but they didn't think it was all that special either. They thought the mode was boring and the least interesting part of the game. It's also a case of Values Dissonance, as the game has received higher ratings in Japan compared to the US so far, some of which is because of the above. The only thing gamers, fans, and critics can agree on is that the game is short.
  • Fashion-Victim Villain: David apparently decided that being stark naked save for gold jewelery glued to the bare essentials is a good enough outfit. At least he wears a robe over it. Then he takes it off for the boss fight-AUGH AUGH AUGH.note 
  • Game Breaker: The Charge Cannon, full stop. You have to do one of the Gigolo missions a second time for it, but when you can obliterate Elite Mooks in one shot, it makes it far more than worth it.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Alice's One-Winged Angel form, full stop.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The cell shading in this game looks GREAT, to say the least.
